Find out what 1% of Rs 4000 is (4000 / 100 = ? )The mark up is 8% so you need to add an additional 8% onto the original price by multiplying 1% (as calculated above) by 8 to get 8%. Then you simply add Rs 4000 to whatever 8% is equal to in Rs which will give you the selling price with an 8% mark up.I hope that helps.

Selling Price = Cost Price + Mark UpMark Up= 8% of Cost Price                    =8% of 4000                    =(8*4000)/1000                     =Rs. 320Selling Price = Cost Price + Mark Up                             =4000+320                             =Rs. 4320

The problem is very easy to solve, if you understand the basic formula for profit or loss, which is as follows:When we have profit (which means selling price is higher than cost)Selling Price = Cost + ProfitAnd Profit can be calculated using the following formula:Profit = Cost x profit percentage/100Therefore, lets first calculate the profit. The profit in our case will be calculated as:Profit = 4000 x 8 / 100 = 320Therefore, the selling price can now be calculated as:Selling Price = Cost + Profit = 4000 + 320 = 4320Very simple, isn't it?
